In the Kitchen

Savor your favorite family memories—ones that start right in your kitchen. Popular TV personality Allison Waggoner brings her family’s recipes to your table in this beautiful collection of meals. With recipes for brunch, dinner, dessert, and drinks, this cookbook invites you to create your own family memories, full of delicious food, fun with friends, and love that lasts a lifetime.
My thoughts: This book is a wonderful addition to one's kitchen! I love the recipes, since they are both unique and easy to navigate. I like how the recipes are set up, with the list of ingredients in a box to the side of the instructions. It makes meal planning and shopping for the ingredients go a lot easier.
I also like the mix of recipes in this cookbook. There are some that are easy to whip up, since I keep a lot of the ingredients on hand, and then there is a nice group of recipes to use for entertaining, recipes that will impress and yet are still relatively easy to make.
Some of the recipes we have enjoyed the most are: Tarragon Chicken Salad: a fun way to mix up a dish that can become boring; Gruyere Chive Popovers: this one is listed as a breakfast idea, but I think it would also be good as a side with a steak and salad; and Strawberry Almond Scones: we have a lot of strawberries from our garden, so I can see using this recipe a lot too!

I received this book from Cedar Fort in exchange for my honest review.


  1. I have a cast iron griddle I can make scones in.
    I haven't used it yet.
    The Strawberry almond Scones sound great!

    1. I never thought to make them in a cast iron griddle! I will have to try that, since I like things cooked in cast iron, but I forget to use mine.;)
